Illya Bryzgalov was a sensational trade acquisition for the Wild late last season, but the 34-year-old is only back in Minnesota because the in-house goalie situation is so bad. The Wild announced that he was invited for a training camp tryout and he'll be with the team when they take the ice for the first time on Friday.

Bryzgalov went 7-1-3 in 12 regular season appearances for the Wild. He posted a 2.12 goals-against average.

Harding hurt kicking a wall

Word to the wise. Don't kick a wall when you're upset. According to the Star Tribune, Josh Harding broke his foot kicking a wall after an off-ice altercation with a teammate. He's expected to miss two to three months.

"The bottom line is right now he’s not available to us, and that diminishes our depth at that position and it hurts our team," general manager Chuck Fletcher told Michael Russo. "However it happened, it’s important to get the answers, but at the end of the day, it’s not going to change the situation.”

Russo expects Fletcher to meet with Harding sometime Thursday.
